While other rappers are calling themselves the “King of New York,” French Montana is actively making it happen. This year, he has experienced much success with his “Shot Caller” single. The song has become one of the most-played radio singles in New York City.

French Montana recently completed the video for his popular single. The video will feature cameos from several of the hottest rappers in the game. Fat Joe, Diddy, Busta Rhymes, and N.O.R.E. appear in the video. The “Shot Caller” video is expected to do just as well as the actual song has.

Before the video for the original track has been released, there are already bigger things in the works. French Montana has the remix of “Shot Caller” in the works. The remix will feature Diddy, who was previously mentioned, and T.I. French Montana credits DJ Drama for being the man who made this happen.

DJ Drama’s favorite song, right now, is French Montana’s “Shot Caller.” When he learned French Montana was going to remix the track, DJ Drama wanted to see if T.I. wanted to be on it. French Montana said he guessed T.I. was asking Drama what were the hottest records to get on. With “Shot Caller” being a favorite of DJ Drama’s obviously he pointed Tip in French Montana’s direction. While the remix is going to be major, it will not be released for a couple of months.

The original “Shot Caller” track has done well, growing from the underground scene to getting radio play on both Hot 97 and Power 105. Despite the success of “Shot Caller,” French Montana is holding off on his debut album until he decides who to sign with. French Montana has been courted by Diddy, who is also his new collaborator, and Rick Ross. However, he does have projects in the works with Waka Flocka Flame and Three 6 Mafia.
